Race Report –
Due to a rescheduled rain out at the Springs the TQ’s had a small field of only 8 cars but produced some good racing neither the less. We ran a Grid Draw  in the first heat and Reverse Grid in the second heat, this saw some good close racing throughout the whole field.  After the 2 heats the highest points scorer got to draw a marble either 4 or 8 this determined how many cars were inverted in the Feature race. Highest points after 2 heats being the 47B of Dave Wilson and he drew the 4. This put the 3NZ of Duane Todd and 32B Kris Gillies off the front Row. Gillies got a Ripper of a Start and managed to hold the Lead from start to finish taking his second Feature for the Season. We have a couple of good drivers Starting to come through in the section, Tony Meechan driving the 8B ex Craig Todd car and Adam Coonan in the 11B car. A Big Thank you to the 84A of Dean Cooper for making the trip down he will be one to watch with a little more seat time in the TQ.

Rep’s Reports …..

HB Saloons – Tracey 
There was some amazing talent on the track in the Hawkes Bay Saloons this weekend, with visitors from Stratford, Huntly, Palmerston North, Rotorua and the Bay Park. Race one saw a few incidents but 49M Bodie Abrahamson managed to avoid it and take the win. Race 2 again had its challenges with a dry slick track causing some drivers to lose traction in places but local Driver 27B Josh Smith managed to hold off the field for the Win.
The battle was on in the Final race with the locals keen to keep the trophy at home and the visiting drivers keen to take it away! Luckily for us Josh managed to battle his way from Grid 9 to take the Win and with it keeping the Hawkes Bay Title in the Bay this Season! 49M Bodie Abrahamson took 2nd Overall. But this wasn’t the end of the action as there was a tie for 3rd Place. Seeing a run off between the 27S Joe Ingram and 57P Calvin Honere. After A 4 lap battle Joe managed to take the 3rd place on the Podium. Congratulations to the Winners and Thank you to all the drivers that traveled to Support our Track and all of our local support. See you on the 28th!

Superstocks – Barry
Superstocks were down on numbers due to a couple of broken cars from last weekend’s Hawkeyes Teams clash with the Wellington Wildcats, plus pre Christmas obligations taking competitors away.
Seven local Cars and two Palmerston North cars fronted for a night full of flat out racing on a nicely prepared track, with the drivers intent on getting in good laps in preparation to upcoming Championships.
Quinn Ryan (46B) started Race 1 from pole and led from start to finish, with ever improving Randal Tarrant (66B) finishing second and Mathew Titter (11B) third from Grid 2.
Race 2 had veteran Clive Elliott (95P) starting from pole, but he was pushed wide on the first corner allowing Clayton Hagen (8B) in the ex Scott Hewson (135R) car through to the lead.
Quinn Ryan started from Grid 5 and worked his way through the field to hit the lead and record another well driven win – shades of Shane Penn.
Hagen hung on to Ryan’s tail to come home second, followed by Elliott.
Race 3 (Feature) saw visitor Brett Hislop (9P) start from pole, and after a great start hung on the lead to the flag, followed by a chasing Quinn Ryan who finished second after starting from Grid 8. Clive Elliott was in the money again, finishing third after starting from Grid 7.
Some fast racing from the Superstock class with the only real contact being in the last race when Hagen spun Tarrant exiting the pit corner.

Side Cars – Melissa
Sidecars are continuing to have record numbers at Meeanee this season with the New Zealand Champs being held here on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th January 2018.  We had visiting bikes from Palmerston North, Gisborne and Auckland who all gave our HB guys and girls a good run.  The 3NZ of Russell Stuart and Andrew Parker took out three wins in a row with 26B Justin Lincoln and Adrian Orchard being the top HB bike with two wins and a third. Close behind were the husband and wife 51B team of Kim & Kerry Johnston with two wins in their heats but unfortunately a DNF in their feature.
17B Troy Devery and Pete Steigenberger were out for the first time this season on their new bike, a few minor changes to make will see these two battle it out again on the 28th December.  More visitors as well as a strong field of bay bikes are already booked for the last meeting before the NZs on the 28th December. Check out the facebook page “David Jones Motors New Zealand Sidecar Champs” give it a like and keep an eye out for competitions, posts and pics of the entrants and all the info for the champs.  There will be a meet and greet night on the Thursday 4th of January at the Meeanee Hotel for all the competitors as well as past competitors, come along and catch up with your favorite Riders/Swingers.

Rep’s Race Reports …..

Stockcars – Andrew
Race one was won by 25B Bryce Cross with a last lap pass over Ben Milne. Both drivers showing good speed with fast cars chasing three seconds behind
Race two was won by 5B Regan Penn after a DNF race one keeping him in the points race
Feature race was a Nail Biting Race, Taken out by Cross closely followed by Regan Penn who tried but couldn’t quite get there on the last corner, 261B Ethan Anderson coming home in third.  This means Regan has taken the points lead off 261B Ethan Anderson after attracting some attention from 96B Brandon Symes trolling the pole line in practice for teams racing.  Another driver to keep an eye on as a first season Stockcar driver is 8B Thomas Rumble who is having a lot of fun in the class and is learning to use his bumper and it looks like Bryce Cross may have found his reliability and got his speed back finally. A Good Nights Racing by All.

Saloons – Tracey
A Great meeting for the Saloons last night with race two seeing an amazing battle between the Martin brothers and Josh Smith. 6 laps of the three cars with barely an inch between them all fighting for the pass to take the lead. Kevin managed to hold off the other two and take the Win.
It was also great to see action down the rear end of the field, three of them having a battle of there own over the three races with Steve Goodwin pushing hard to be the best of the rest having his 2nd place taken from him with a slip to the grass.
Cant wait to see what action the Hawkes Bay Champs will bring.

 Superstocks – Barry
Superstocks really turned on the entertainment, with action aplenty all night. 21 cars in total included the Wellington Wildcats 5 cars, Rotorua 3 cars and 13 locals. Locals returning to the fold for their first night were Thomas Stanaway (87B) with his brand new car, Regan O’Brien (52B), Jason Long (41B), and Adam Groome (9B). Maddie Wise (136B) returned from his work base in Christchurch especially for this race meeting.
The first race scheduled was the Hawkes Bay Hawkeyes, Regan O’Brien (52B), Quintin Butcher (98B), Randal Tarrant (66B), Zach Lawrence (22B) and Adam Groome (9B) reserve car, versus Wellington Wildcats, Hilton Parker (321W), Richard Gaskin (22W), Regan Levien (5W), Dave Hughes (16W) and Shane Davis (7W) reserve.

This Teams Race was supposed to be a “friendly” affair but turned out rather harshly for some of the competitors after assessing the damage afterwards.
Quintin Butcher (98B) was set upon from race start by two Wildcat cars and suffered left front wheel and stub axle damage.
However he continued to circulate and disrupted the Wildcat cars at reduced speed wherever possible – he was supposed to be the flyer.
Regan O’Brien also spent the race in blocking mode, causing a fair amount of mayhem to the Wildcats.
Meanwhile, new Hawkeye Randal Tarrant (66B) seized the moment right from the start to leap through a gap and continued to lead the race to the end.
Several Wildcat cars tried vainly to stop his progress, but he managed to avoid the contact with some clever passing manoeuvres.
He was chased to the end by Regan Levien (5W), followed by Zach Lawrence (22B) running as Tarrant’s back-up.
The end result was a win to the Hawkeyes, either by first over the line, or 135 points to 60.

The first of the “all in” races saw 20 cars face the starter, with one Wildcat (5W) out for the night with Teams Race damage – he was due to start from grid 2, leaving this spot vacant. Mathew Titter (11B) seized his opportunity, starting from grid 4, to leap into the lead he did not relinquish until race end, even after two stoppages and restarts on the way. This was Titter’s first win and he took the checked flag past the Starter and back to the pits, claiming he wanted to keep it. Unfortunately Officials had other ideas and handed the flag back.
During this race the main incidents involved Bryce Steiner (118R) being shunted into Zach Lawrence (22B) who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, with Lawrence skidding into the concrete wall and rolling over onto the track. The next incident involved Joe Faram (4B) being rolled after contact from Maddie Wise (136B) exiting turn 2. Second in this race was Randal Tarrant (66B) after starting from pole, with Richard Gaskin (22W) third after starting from grid 7.
Race two saw a depleted field of 13 cars, with Faram and Lawrence out with roll-over damage, Steiner – broken steering box, Pat Westbury (97R) and Adam Groome (9B) engine problems, Dave Hughes (16W) front axle damage and Tarrant with unknown issues. Quinn Ryan (46B) started from grid 4 and made good progress to lead for many laps until retiring on lap 9 with overheating issues. Quintin Butcher (98B) won this race after starting from grid 2 and following Ryan at speed until Ryan’s withdrawal. Maddie Wise (136B) started from grid 3 and finished close behind, followed by a flying Jason Long (41B) who started from grid 9.
Race three saw the field further depleted, with only 9 cars fronting, and two cars 555R (Dan Holland) and 321W (Hilton Parker) left behind in the pits after missing gate close. Jason Long started from pole and sprinted to the finish line 12 laps later. Maddie Wise finished a very close second, after chasing and closing up on Long with a spirited drive from grid 13. Richard Gaskin (22W) secured third place after starting from grid 6, but with two clear spaces in front at race start had an open run.
Jason Long had a good first night with a 4th, 3rd and 1st.
Thomas Stanaway (87B) also had a good night in his new car with a 12th, 5th and 4th after starting from the rear of the grid in all three races.
Maddie Wise made his trip North worthwhile with a 13th, 2nd and 2nd.
The next race meeting for the Hawkeyes is next Saturday 2nd December, at Te Marua in their return match against the Wellington Wildcats.
Can the Hawkeyes win this one on the Wildcats home track?

Ministocks – Claire
With the “Big Guns” away in Gisborne, A slightly Smaller Group of Ministocks hit the track this Weekend, this gave the “Juniors” a Taste of Clutch Race Starts and they All did Well, not a Stall in sight. Action a plenty with the two groups mixed, everyone is certainly Improving Fast and that’s good to see. 97B Mashall Zachan had the honor of taking the first two Race Wins and Breaking the Track record in the Feature Race (Tho this is yet to be confirmed due to a technical Transponder / Computer error last meeting!) But it was 6RHB Liam Reid who Lead from the Front to take home the Chixieland Chicken Feature Race of the Night.

Rep’s Race Reports …..

TQ’s – Nick
Meeting 3 at Meeanee and the second outing for the TQ’s. It was a good turnout of 13 Cars with good support from the Auckland Cars that took the time to travel, a Big Thank You to them. The meeting for as was the Dusty Rhodes Memorial, we ran a marble draw and reverse marble to determine the grids for the first two heats, Points overall then determined the grids for the 15 lap feature. The first 2 races saw some good clean fast racing with 3NZ Duane Todd Taking the Win in the first race with 2NZ Kaleb Currie right behind. Race 2 84A Dean cooper ran away with 74G Ryan MacGregor and 35A Cieran Rose chasing, this resulting in MacGregor top on points with Todd and Currie equal 2nd. The feature saw Currie out in Front from the Green Light with Todd chasing the whole race and Dean Cooper coming home in third.
Again from the Hawkes Bay TQ Club we would like to Thank Kaleb Currie, Dean Cooper, Cieran Rose,Saul Smith,Morgan McHugh and all the supporters for taking the time to come down and Support our Club and help put on a good show!

Superstocks – Barry
Superstocks are still low in numbers, with several stars of last season yet to make an appearance.Once again, we were lucky to welcome back two young Rotorua visitors, 89R Calyn Clarke, with another motor installed after blowing his original at our last meeting, and 96R Dylan Towler, both ex Mini Stock competitors.Eight locals gave a total of 10 cars, and with a great drivey track surface, produced some fast racing once again.
Driver of the night and winner of the Tony McIntosh trophy was Quinn Ryan (46B)in the James Buckrell owned blue rocket, after recording wins in Race One and Two and second in the Feature.
A much improved Zach Lawrence (22B) placed 2nd in Race One, 4th in Race Two and 1st in Race 3 (Feature), to place second overall.
Third was Joe Faram (4B) who placed 8th in Race One, 2nd in Race 2 and 3rd in Race 3. Faram had a difficult night after being disrupted by the blocking tactics of Quintin Butcher (98B) in each race. Butcher was also instrumental in assisting Lawrence in his Feature race win through his blocking mode which added to the overall spectacle. Another driver in blocking mode was Randal Tarrant (66B), enjoying his first season in Superstocks, and also a contender for the Hawkeyes Team this season.
The Hawkeyes first Teams Race is against the Wellington Wildcats here at Meeanee next weekend, with early contenders, Zach Lawrence, Randal Tarrant and Quintin Butcher real possibilities, along with one other driver yet to appear next week – who will that be?
Unfortunately, Quinn Ryan is unavailable for Teams Racing this season, and is currently holding a huge lead in Club Points with 68, followed by Zach Lawrence on 36, and Joe Faram on 27.

Production Saloons – Cheryl
As always great night of racing, had some outer townies Gisborne 17g Anton Mckay, Whanganui -Grant Little 5v, Brent Hackett 434v and Mike Lovell 10v. Well done to Brent Redington 46b for taking out the first race, Grant Little 5v for taking out the Second Race and Anton Mckay 17g taking the third race and feature, but the most exciting part of the night was when Denton Hodgkison rolled his car and landed back on his feet. considering that these cars are non contact we still not sure who pushed him up the wall?…. Not a good night for the Bay’s Brendon Zachan he was having motor trouble but he will be back so watch this space!
